Document Description
The Fresno to Bakersfield Project Section EIR/EIS considered several alternatives between the cities of Fresno and Bakersfield and ultimately identified a Preferred Alternative from the Fresno high-speed rail station to the Bakersfield high-speed rail station to Oswell St in Bakersfield. The California High Speed Rail Authority Board certified the Fresno to Bakersfield Section Final EIR/EIS in May 2014. The Preferred Alternative identified by the Authority Board consists of portions of the BNSF alternative in combination with the Corcoran Bypass, Allensworth Bypass, and Bakersfield Hybrid alternatives. In Bakersfield, the preferred alternative included a station that would be constructed at the corner of Truxtun and Union Ave/SR 204, as well as maintenance of infrastructure facility that would lie along the alignment extending from downtown Fresno to approx 7th Standard Road. Therefore, the board did not approve a location for the portion of the alignment that extended into Bakersfield. The FRA, in August 2014, approved the entire preferred alternative from the Fresno Station to Oswell St in Bakersfield.
